maybe it's my eyes, but i cannot get the apple 17'studio CRT to look good. it looks alittle out of focus, and the desktop pic i have looks grainy. i've tried other pics, and they also look grainy and just a hair out of focus. i have tried different resolutions and nothing seems to help. i have a belkin mac to vga adaptor for the monitor and spent 30 mins on hold and another 40 mins with their tech support because the instructions that came with it were for the "9 pin" and i have the "8 pin w/rotary switch" i tried every pin and switch combo on the tech sheet i downloaded from their website ( i even set the adaptor to the "default, works with everything settings") and i cannot even get a picture on the monitor unless i keep it the way i originally had it. the only thing that seems to affect the sharpness of the monitor is the "vergence" etc.... controls on the monitor itself, but i cannot get this monitor to look as good as my imac. ..............very frustrating.....help (again)
